Community Nature Walks: Celebrating trees and health!
By Erica Timm
What do trees, walking and socializing with friends and neighbors all have common? Well, they’re all good for your health!
We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate Arbor Month than to host a Community Nature Walk in a few communities around Portland this month. Check the list below to find the one fits your schedule best:
- Boise-Eliot Neighborhood: Thursday, April 9th at 1 p.m. meeting at Lot 13 (4009 N Mississippi Ave) – map
- Lents Neighborhood: Wednesday, April 15th at 6 p.m. meeting at the Lents Tool Library (9211 SE Ramona St) – map
- Portsmouth Neighborhood: Saturday, April 25th at 10 a.m. meeting at the N Houghton-Fortune intersection – map
These walks bring folks together for an hour long walking conversation about the neighborhood nature gems we’ll discover along the way and other related tree topics. Some highlights may include a wishing tree, a topiary animal hedge, a community orchard, a healing garden and more…
Join us for a walk, or all three, to learn more about Portland’s neighborhood nature gems!
